This midtown spin-off offers the same menu of American brasserie fare (steaks, salads, pastas) as the East Village original. Take a seat at the L-shaped zinc bar and choose from dishes like the "Brooklyn-style" calamari (crispy fried squid with marinara) or a thick burger topped with cheddar and bacon. You'll also find raw-bar plates, like East and West Coast oysters, scallop ceviche and Lobster Louie—a seafood salad with a spicy and creamy dressing.

Whether you go there for brunch, lunch, dinner, or just after work drinks, this place will never disappoint you. The Midtown location is a big space with a modern, minimalist décor. Every time I have been there it’s been packed, which means the folks at The Smith are doing something right. For brunch try the ranchero scramble if you like a Mexican taste with your eggs or the fantastic smoked salmon benedict. For you grit lovers out there, the jalapeno cheddar grits are a must. Some great dinner choices are the brick pressed chicken and ricotta gnocchi. The Smith has got it all going on, and then some.
